OMG!! Netflix is working on a live-action Pikachu series, and I can’t freaking wait!!
Pokemon is STILL all the rage with the kiddos. Thanks to games like Pokemon GO, Pokemon X and Y, endorsements by the likes of Post Malone, a Pikachu live-action movie, and of course, the Pokemon card game, Pikachu and the gang are still going strong after 30 some-odd years.
The kids (and adults, alike) are going to FREAK when they find out that there is about to be a new show dedicated to that to the adorable little yellow dude — and it’s LIVE ACTION!
Not much is known AT ALL about this new series. We don’t have a name or a plot yet, but it’s enough just to know it’s on the way.
We do know that Lucifer show-runner, Joe Henderson, is set to write and executive produce the new Pikachu show.
Netflix is already the home for all things Pokemon, including shows like Pokemon: Indigo League and Pokemon Journeys, which are currently on repeat in my son’s room — I’m surprised he doesn’t quote the dialog along with the show!
It isn’t really a surprise that they would delve into the world of an original Pikachu series, but it IS a special bombshell that they chose to make it a live-action show!
I can’t wait to see what other Pokemon characters end up in this live-action version of Pikachu.
Aren’t you totally stoked for this new live-action Pikachu series?!?
